Performance review is where a manager examines and discusses an employee’s recent successes and failures at work, so that an assessment can be made of that person’s suitability for a particular job, or for promotion or training and development. It usually includes a strength and weaknesses analysis to determine areas for improvement, and whether or not predetermined agreed standards and goals have been achieved. It can also be used to improve job satisfaction, career planning, management succession, manpower planning, and as a basis for deciding levels of pay.
